Enjoy the free tubing and concert series right on the Trinity River with a gorgeous backdrop of downtown Fort Worth.

Whether you float up to Texas’ only waterfront stage or chill on the shore, Rockin’ the River is the coolest seat in town this summer.

The popular music and tubing series, in its eighth year, is back at Panther Island Pavilion. Enjoy 30 bands over six weeks, including top Texas country acts, a little rock and soul, and a fireworks show to round it off.

Each week, gates open at 1 p.m. with five bands playing back-to-back sets beginning about 2:15 p.m. on the Coors Light Waterfront Stage. After the headlining band finishes at 8:25 p.m., the party moves to the shore with the fifth band playing on the Pacifico Stage.

In addition to live music on two stages, food and beverage options will be available for purchase, as well as tube and watersport rentals. Each event ends with a fireworks show on the banks of the Trinity River.

Acts throughout the summer include Micky and the Motorcars, Kody West, the Dirty River Boys, Dalton Domino, and more. View the full band lineup and other details. The concerts run July 7-Aug. 11.
